    Portable Kitchen's PKGO Camp & Tailgate Grilling System Review, by Max Good
    LINK: https://amazingribs.com/pkgo

    Self described as "small but mighty" the new PKGO is beautiful, elegant, clever, effective, and versatile, yet a little pricey for a small, portable charcoal grill. Nonetheless, with PKGO, you get what you pay for, and that means top quality. We say, "Go Man Go", to PKGO and award it our top, Platinum Medal.

      Same. I have both Smokey Joe sizes and I find myself justifying to myself that this would be good for the beach too.

    Oh....I'm a big PK fan. I will probably buy this. Really like the probe port. Wish my PK360 had one.

      Attjack - Of course I could make one. I had an older WSM and put a grommet in for my probes. The new WSM have a probe port. Just saying I wish my PK360 had one. They'll probably put them in on future models.

      That is really slick. I was biding my time until I bought a 18" Jumbo Joe to replace my 14" for camping but this is going to make that decision a little harder.

          I love my PK original, if I was in the market for handy little grill for car camping or tailgates I'd be all over that.

          But I don't really do either, so I'm holding out for the Presidential Plus model. Make it the size of the BGE 2XL, 675 glorious sq in of cook space. I want the option of cooking 100 burgers at once!*

          *the Presidential Plus is not a real model and PK has no plans to make one AFAIK. But it'd be alot cooler if they did....

            Yeah the only limitation with my pk360 is size. If I had a 720 I wouldn’t need anything else.

          Are they still selling the short portable stand for the original? The original is great for picnics etc, where the go may be more suited to a camping situation.

            @Polabear777 Damn! That stand is about half the price of the grill.

            True the stand is expensive, but if you already have the original and want to transport it, the stand is cheaper than the new GO and the original is a more capable cooker.

            On the other hand if you have the PK360 and want to transport, you can actually cook with the capsule without a stand at all (on a non-flamable surface) since the intakes are front and back opening.

            This is probably why I'll never see a pk720 because they'd have to remove "portable" from the name.

          I'm really interested, but have a question. I'm looking for something I can use for kebabs...particularly the ground meat sorts that are done on wide "sword" skewers. I already have the skewers, and racks to support them above grate level, but I can't quite tell how well they'll fit on this.

          Do you have dimensions for the cooking grates, and how high are they above the charcoal grate. I don't do kebabs enough to warrant buying a purpose-made mangal, and that little PK looks really sweet. Thanks!

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            the good one grill
            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
